Magellan™ 1500i



The Magellan 1500i scanner from Datalogic is the latest addition to their imaging presentation scanner offering. Building on the success of the Magellan 1000i and 9800i, the Magellan 1500i combines excellent imaging with an innovative design to create a powerful presentation scanner that is sure to impress. With a sleek new look and a host of features, the Magellan 1500i is the perfect choice for any business that needs a reliable and easy-to-use scanner.

The Magellan 1500i is a stylish scanner with a small (8 x 9 cm) footprint. However, the durable industrial design guarantees its longevity in all of your operations. You can receive hundreds of hours of performance when you need it thanks to a sturdy IP52 rated casing that can withstand multiple drops of up to 1.2 m onto concrete. Additionally, the numerous mounting options, such as a magnetic mount and wall mount, make it simple to set or rapidly convert between fixed and handheld scanning. Performance will always take precedence in both cases.


Scanning Performance

The Magellan 1500i scanner from Datalogic is one of the most capable scanners in its class, thanks to its large reading area and excellent sweep performance. Even novice users will find it easy to use, thanks to the consistent, comfortable illumination and intuitive design. The Magellan 1500i can read 1D and 2D barcodes from printed or mobile sources with ease, and also features Digimarc®Barcode decoding for even greater flexibility. If you’re looking for a top-quality scanner that will make your life easier, the Magellan 1500i is an excellent choice.

Any point of sale or service setting benefits from the versatility of the Magellan 1500i barcode scanner. With options for both hands-free and handheld scanning, the Magellan 1500i scanner is a flexible and simple-to-use gadget. The scanner is efficiently designed to route the cable away from the unit, ensuring that it never gets in your way. The Magellan 1500i is available in black or white and has a clean, uncluttered look that promotes an efficient workspace.

The scanner operates in two modes: Stand Mode for hands-free usage or Presentation Mode scanning for handheld use. Stand mode enables high-speed sweep operation of up to 1.5 m/s; and handheld mode is automatically activated via the built-in accelerometer and provides targeted scanning with Datalogic’s Green Spot Technology with good-read feedback. Whichever way you choose to use it, you can count on easy scanning of your products and increased productivity.

Adaptive illumination has been added by Datalogic to the Magellan 1500i. This prevents flicker and lowers brightness when it’s unnecessary, perhaps decreasing eye fatigue for your operators. When there are barcodes in the field of view, the illumination will automatically change and optimize. When switching between scanning printed barcodes and those through mobile devices, no adjustments are necessary. Compared to laser-based scanning, the lighting made entirely of LEDs is much safer and more dependable. Comfort and industry-leading performance are guaranteed by the near-infrared and deep red lighting combination. When your operators must comfortably and easily perform the longest shifts, the 1500i is the ideal partner.

Ergonomics And Mounting

The Magellan 1500i scanner is a small, lightweight scanner that is comfortable for all users – even those with small hands. The Magellan 1500i cable exits from the bottom of the unit and routes away from the hand. This cable routing also means that the scanner has the smallest footprint in its class- a critical feature when space is at a premium. Competitive scanners have cables that exit straight out the back of the unit, making them difficult to hold securely and giving them a larger footprint on the counter. The Magellan 1500i also has an intelligent cable routing system that helps to keep the work area organized and tidy. This is a great feature for any business – large or small. Overall, the Magellan 1500i is a great choice for any business looking for a high-quality, reliable scanner.

The Magellan 1500i may be mounted on a variety of devices, making it adaptable to any setting. These mounts can all be quickly and without tools reconfigured by being snapped on and off. Scan zones may be positioned for best effectiveness and higher items can be easily scanned thanks to the tall, tilting riser. The scanner can be positioned on shelves, under counters, or next to cash drawers with the help of a short, fixed riser without compromising the hand-friendly wire routing. The Magellan1500i may be easily mounted on a wall, in a kiosk, or to the side of a POS display thanks to the multifunction L bracket. Snap the scanner into place after mounting the L bracket.

The scanner is secured to the counter and can swivel so that it can be easily scanned by the cashier or the customer thanks to an inventive magnetic attachment that works with both the tall and short risers. When the scanner is lifted up for use, the magnet holds it firmly but releases readily portable scanning activities.

The Magellan 1500i is a great scanner for businesses of all sizes. It comes preconfigured from the factory but it’s easily configured in the field with Datalogic’s Scanalyzer™ tool, programming barcodes or remote host download.
